From the Touch

Thomas Whitley

I’m testing out the mobile posting from my iTouch. I likely will not use this as a main means of posting, but having the capability is very nice.

In other news, I head back to classes on Monday. I’m sure that much more about them will come soon.

Facebook's Site Browser

Thomas Whitley

According to the BBC, Facebook is releasing a system called Connect that ” lets Facebook members use their login credentials to access other websites.” Not only that, is “also gives feedback about what a Facebooker’s friends have been doing on those partner sites.”

Why would Facebook do this? The BBC hits the nail on the head: “to ensure that they do not become a place that members go but are the only place they have to go as they can use their login information to get at content anywhere else.”

Is this a good thing?

Facebook is hoping it will bring even more advertisers to their social networking site, but how will the users be affected? They seem to be promising that it will not share information without first getting permission from the users as they have been prone to do in the past.

Is this something you would use? Why or why not?
